What is BEA, you ask?
Why, BEA is the largest book trade show in the United States. It resides in the puzzling and constantly-renovating far-from-everything Javits Center in New York City, and it is chock-a-block full with publishers, booksellers, librarians, authors, and also this year, miscellaneous members of the public.
We’ll be there, exhibiting with our parent company, Macmillan. This means: if you come by the Macmillan booth, #3358, you have a small chance of catching me while I’m not running around to meetings/lunches/panels/signings etc.
We shall also be involved in some events, where you are more likely to find us (if you so desire).
